Okay, finally got to let this all seep into my brain and I’m ready to try to share what we found out.
Clarity on the details I posted last by Doctor:
Elevated markers of Eosinophil Protein X (should be less than 7.0: hers is 6.2): Very high but fine and shows that at least 1 pancreatic enzyme is working well. He would like to see it brought down and the way to do this is by reducing foods she is allergic to. He suggests cycling foods in and out/elimination diet.
Our thoughts: We are tired of playing food guessing games. We have decided to take A for ‘formal’ allergy testing. To us this means either the scratch test or a blood test. We will research more on that and decide. For now, we are still waiting on insurance…
She has an excess of BAD bacteria in her gut. We need to kill off that bacteria and then start to repopulate with good bacteria. To kill off the bad she needs to take Uva Ursi, aka Bearberry (aka BearShit – to my taste buds DH said its sweet and tart…um, no.) Then to repopulate we will again give her the probiotics.
He will get back to us on Highly Elevated markers of Lithocholic: Deoxycholic acid ratio (LCA: DCA): (Elevated is >2.07: hers is 2.79). He needed to do a little research on his end. He kept saying it wasn’t a concern but I didn’t feel at ease with that.
That is pretty much the jist of it. He said if she isn’t have a bowel movement regularly within a week or so to bring her in for acupuncture. I admit, I’m still a little skeptical about that on her but it’s a possibility.
For now we continue chiropractic care, stay hydrated, give this medicine, and eat non-allergenic foods. Simplicity is so deceiving.
Today does bring news of poop though! Yay!
